In terms of durability, there is not much difference between the parquet flooring and solid harwood timber flooring in Melbourne.
Timber parquet flooring is also soft to walk on, making it perfect for rooms such as the kitchen where one has to stand for a long period of time. Noise is also diminished because of cork flooring and compared to carpet, it does a better job in lessening the noise of footsteps.
Some cons may include:
- The surface of cork flooring can easily be indented and scratched. You need to be mindful of dragging furniture and stiletto heels which can cause indents
- Colour may fade if exposed to direct sunshine. Yet, this can easily be managed if you install windows with UV-protective coating
- Weather can also affect the longevity of the cork flooring, causing it to either swell or become deformed. This is less likely to happen if the humidity levels are maintained at 30-60%.
